King Tubby - King Tubby Meets Scientist In A World Of Dub

Genre:Reggae / Dub
A favorite King Tubby compilations (although you could credit it to King Tubby or Scientist, who each mixed the tracks, or Jah Thomas, who produced the tracks, or even Roots Radics, who played the music on the tracks); it avoids the monotone, mundane sound that dub can sometimes mire its way into. Instead, it blasts into your eardrums with a dynamic drum and bass-saturated early '80s dancehall sound, often with echoes of DJ originators rumbling in the background. The best cut in my opinion is the ominous "King Tubby's Badness Dub," although classic rhythms abound, from "My Conversation" ("King Tubby's Conversation Dub") to "Shank I Shenk" ("Scientist Tribute to the Reggae King Dub") to "African Beat" ("Scientist Ganga Dub") to "Rougher Yet" ("King Tubby's Going Home in Dub") – the dubs generally being not of the original songs, but of DJ updates of the rhythms. Only in the last 3 or so tracks does this album falter, as a generic digital sound seeps in and taints an otherwise classic collection.
